I am looking into a 2003 VW Golf GTI. Its got ~70k miles on it. It was in a minor accident where someone ran into the back of him. That was the first thing the guy told me and he said there is a carfax report on the incident. He is asking $7200....i am thinking ill work him down a little on that considering the accident.
He said that the front left tire gets a work out because the amount of torque. I dont think that makes any sense to me unless he is burning out. Anyone here of that issue with the gti's?
Are the turbo's pretty reliable in these?
Anything I should know from an experienced owner?
I am trying to keep this car for a good 5 years before I get something new and I dont want to keep dumping money into tires or anything else really. I will take it to a mechanic before I buy, just looking for some issues i may run into. Thanks!
